WonderCon 2016 Photos are Up

I spent Saturday and Sunday afternoons at WonderCon in Los Angeles, and took my usual photos of sights and cosplay. The LA convention center does feel different than Anaheim, but the con still felt like a WonderCon, not like ComiKaze or Wizard World. The size and variety of the exhibit hall, and the sheer amount of programming, went a long way. (I also went a long way…from one end to the other of the convention center. Repeatedly. Think of it as a dumbbell, with the exhibit hall on one side, and programming on the other and along the bar.)

Vote! Flashes in CSBG & TMStash’s March Madness Tournaments – Round 3

The March Madness tournaments at TMStash and Comics Should Be Good — both focusing on TV superheroes — have moved on to round three.

At TMStash, the focus is on entire series. The Flash (current series) defeated Wonder Woman (1970s), and goes up against Batman: The Animated Series in round three.

At CSBG, it’s about the character portrayals. John Wesley Shipp’s Flash lost to by John Constantine, but Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen continues into Round 3 (Daily Planet region), up against Clark Kent (Tom Welling).

Vote! Two TV Flashes Move to Round 2 of CSBG’s March Madness

The stars of both live-action Flash TV shows have moved on to the next round in their respective brackets in CSBG’s annual March Madness DC/Marvel character tournament.

Kyle Gallner’s Bart Allen from Smallville didn’t make it, but considering he was up against Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl, that’s not terribly surprising.
